Manhattan Realtor Charles Cohen fell in love with the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood at first sight. It was two years ago, and he had come to the WestWeek design festival at the center as part of his ongoing education to learn how design centers operate. "It looked so spectacular--I am a great admirer of architecture. I saw this giant blue and green Lego set, and it knocked me out!" he recalled by phone from his New York office. "I knew I wanted it."

Seven advertising and public relations firms owned by the Interpublic Group of Companies Inc. will consolidate their offices at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood as part of a $40-million lease announced Monday.

The five-year agreement, announced Wednesday at the opening of the center's WestWeek design festival, will allow the museum to expand its architecture and design exhibition program in a setting that welcomes adventurous ideas, MOCA director Jeremy Strick said.
